Company Summary:

American Airlines, Inc., commonly known as AA or AAL, is a major American airline based in Fort Worth, Texas. It is the world’s largest airline if measured by scheduled passengers carried, revenue passenger mile, and by fleet size. American Airline, joined by its regional partners, operates a vast international plus domestic network with over 6,000 flights daily flying to almost 350 destinations in more than 50 countries around the globe.

American Airlines was formed in 1930 through a merger of over eighty small airlines. American Airlines originated from two organizations: Robertson Aircraft Corporation and Colonial Air Transport. Robertson Aircraft started in Missouri in 1921 and both organizations merged in 1929 to become the Aviation Corporation, which became an operating company and rebranded as American Airways. Several years later, new laws forced many airlines to reorganize. American Airways redid its routes into a connected system and was renamed American Airlines. It was in 2013 when American Airlines merged with US Airways but kept the AA name because it was the better-recognized brand internationally. The result is the creation of the largest airline in the US and the world.

With a shared purpose of caring for people on life’s journey, American’s global team members give service to over 200 million customers every year. American Airlines is excited about the future and offers their people a vast array of benefits that promote whole family well-being, now and in the near future.
